Help the Children’s Hospital Charity build a better future
The Children’s Hospital Charity has launched the Building a Better Future appeal to raise £14.25m for a renovated emergency department, cancer ward and helipad for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
The hospital’s emergency department is a designated major trauma centre, providing specialist care to children across the region. Designed for 32,000 admissions a year, it now sees 60,000 patients every 12 months.
The renovation will expand the clinical space and create privacy, helping children receive the most appropriate care in the best possible way. The cancer ward will also be transformed, with more space, privacy and natural light to help relieve the anxiety felt by both parent and patient alike.
Finally, a new Helipad will also stop critically-ill patients being transported across the busy A57 on a stretcher, wasting time when every second counts. The Children’s Hospital Charity director, David Vernon-Edwards said of the appeal: “These projects have never been more needed as we strive to build a better future for Sheffield Children’s Hospital. Every donation, large or small, will make a difference to young patients from across the UK and beyond, who depend on our hospital’s excellent care.”
